3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fancy looking 330ml wine bottle thingy.Pours a hazy straw body reminisant of a Belgian white. Fresh aroma full of banana, tropical fruits, vanilla and spice. Slightly chewy palate packed with flavour. Banana, pineapple, grass, vanilla flavours, with a yeasty finish. I quite like this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2007 Very cloudy and yellow in colour. A frothy white head at first which quickly quickly disappeared leaving no lacing. A pleasant fruity aroma with a hint of banana. Lightly carbonated with a light to medium body. A rather sweet and fruity taste with only a mild bitterness.

Poured a home brew brown with a sudsy head. Some elements of sourness but more of a home brew tang to my taste. Abit so so...

Felt this was a bit overrated, although perhaps I’m a bit spoiled for wheat beer since coming back from Germany. (actually, I think it was the pale ale people were raving about, but unfortunately i missed out on that one after breaking the top off the bottle when trying to open it, and wasn’t keen on a mouthful of broken glass... shame). Anyway, principal strength of this one is that it manages to exude the aroma of both a compost heap and a floral bouquet simultaneously. Not sure how, but there you go.

Sweet resin hardwood whilst looking like filthy dishwater. A tad watery, a bit thin and wanders off leaving you feeling left out in the cold. IT’s not that bad, but it also, not that great.

Bottle. Quite decent and a decent take on a German Wheat.This has some nice estery banana fruit aswell as the cloveyness you tend to associate with the style. This has more lemony qualities than most, sweet and tart, like lemon icing sugar.

19 May 2006 - Sweet banana and light spice hop aroma. Cloudy dark yellow colour, low on head and suds, but nice bottle (gets an extra point for the voluptuous bottle). Light sweet fruit and light hoppy flavour. Stark hoppy sweet finish and banana finish.

an acceptable wheat beer that is more on the Belgian style rather than the German style of wheat beer. Aroma of spice and a some banana with the same flavours following through. Carbonation was minimal so was easy to go down, but the head retention was very poor for this style of beer. Given the price of the beer, I can’t say that this is a winner. Yes I know price isn’t a criteria here, but it is a factor when it is considerably more than the going market rate but is not delivering a better experience.
